A new management team has been appointed at the Leeds office of hlw Keeble Hawson – one of the region’s largest law firms.
The team includes partners Michael Cantwell, Rachel Crookes, Simon Hellewell and Natalie Nattress who have jointly amassed a wealth of experience in areas spanning corporate, litigation and dispute resolution, insolvency and business recovery – as well as commercial property.
The development comes at a time when the firm – acknowledged as a significant player across its commercial and private client services in the latest Legal 500 and Chambers directories – is investing in relocating the Leeds team to new premises in the city centre.
Paul Trudgill, hlw Keeble Hawson managing partner, will chair the management team. He said: “Our Leeds management team aptly reflects our broader expertise and continued development across their respective teams.
“We continue to have a strong pipeline of commissions and our commitment to developing the next generation of lawyers through our recruitment drive for top talent on both senior and junior levels will continue throughout this year.”
hlw Keeble Hawson, which operates out of offices across Leeds, Sheffield and Doncaster, also ranks in The Lawyer UK 200 Annual Report 2014 – a league table of the UK’s 200 leading law practices.
